OnePlus to give consumers a second chance to pre-order the OnePlus One

OnePlus to give consumers a second chance to pre-order the OnePlus One
Problems with the servers employed by OnePlus for its first pre-order period, have led the company to offer a second chance for consumers to pre-order the OnePlus One. This happened despite a doubling of server capacity before the pre-order period took place. Many of those trying to sign in, found themselves hung up at points in the pre-ordering process. Over the last 24 hours, OnePlus examined the entire process to see exactly what went wrong, and discovered that more computing power was needed.

Besides deciding that an apology was in order, OnePlus has decided to give consumers a second chance to pre-order its flagship phone. So on November 17th, starting at 10am EST, another OnePlus One pre-order period will begin.

OnePlus has learned from the previous pre-order period. More servers will be enabled this time around, and more inventory will be available. Other problems popped up, and will be fixed. OnePlus had accidentally labeled all Canadian orders as being destined for the U.S. Some consumers pre-ordered one unit, and ended up on the hook for two. And some never received a confirmation email.

If you were unable to pre-order the OnePlus One that you've been dying for, you are going to get another shot at it on November 17th. As we pointed out, OnePlus has made some changes to the pre-order process which improve your chances of reserving a phone this time around.

Yes true. Even after 6 months of its release, I dont think even 10k people were able to get the phone. Lack of planning. Maybe funds too. And too much expectations

The price is the only saving grace for this phone. It's the only thing that keeps people even the least bit interested in this device. OnePlus completely botched this pre-order. If I'm a customer, why would I want to wait until the 17th when better devices will be readily available by then. I feel badly for those who actually wanted this device but couldn't snag one. I have Verizon, so I'll be getting the Nexus 6 and Note 4. The OnePlusOne isn't even an option for me.

Would love to buy 1 but my previous one is still a looker so I'll skip this 1.maybe 1+3 with sd810. Don't want to settle with 32bit chip phn ATM.

Looks like the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is really doing a great job and other manufacturers are starting to feel the heat, Samsung released the Note 4 earlier than it was supposed to be released and now OnePlus suddenly got generous with Pre-orders. One more thing....I'm ditching my Note 3 for an iPhone 6 Plus in few hours.

Ferrari ? Not really bro. I got the Exynos Note 3(SM-N900), and it was the worst mistake I have every did. This phone overheats like crazy, I don't know if you read my story here on phoneArena but in short I have suffered from some minor burns because of this phone. And because crappy Samsung decided not to release the documentations for this processor, I wasn't able to get a decent custom ROM. Battery life is what I like on this phone and I'm looking forward to compare it to the one on the 6 Plus. Yeh I wasn't able to get the 6 Plus yet .... Can't find one

Thanks thanks :P but because the demand for the 6 Plus is so high, I couldn't find one yet. This phone is being sold like Hot Cakes

Its like OnePlus is harassing people into this stunt. More like showing dogs food and let them smell the food and eventually not giving them the food. Bad Karma is coming on you OnePlus.

I really hope this company dies soon and 2015 is not polluted with their bogus promotions, send us your sexy pics scams, and endless hunger games marketing schemes.

Presale was listed as starting at 11am eastern time. Well at 9:52 am eastern time the page was already up stating that the presale was over. What a joke.

OP are a scam company. I initially jumped on the bandwagon, chasing invites, participating in forums, entering competitions and all that hoopla... all for naught. The whole system is a scam to garner interest and free advertising for a product you can't actually get. I ended up ordering an LG G3, new, for $90 more than the OPO. 24 hours later it was in my hand. $90 is a small price to pay for proper support, no waiting and not having to deal with that awful CM11.
